Default 'SOS! Tokyo Metro Explorers: The Next' - High-Def Digest review

Just posted Kenneth's review of the 40-minute anime feature, 'SOS! Tokyo Metro Explorers: The Next.' He quite enjoyed the film itself, and says this Blu-ray release from Bandai Visual is excellent, boasting an eye-popping video transfer and an extraordinary TrueHD audio track.

I really want this one, but I can't find it for sale at a reasonable price. I think that 39.99 MSRP you guys have listed might be wrong, because everywhere else I see has it at 64.99.

As an added bonus, unlike other Bandai Visual high-def releases, this one even comes with a more reasonable price tag.
No way. I don't care how good it is, 39.95 msrp for a 40 minute Blu-Ray is not worth it at all. The absolute least I find acceptable for an anime is a 3 episode, 75 minute disc. Even then I'm not happy, but will buy it if I really like the anime.

I know anime is typically pricier than anything else, but this is just ridiculous. If this really is comparatively cheap for Bandai, then count me out for any of their Blu-Ray releases.

The review got the MSRP wrong.. DVD Empire is charging an arm and a leg for this, at least you can get it for $48.74 through Anime Castle. It's still steep as hell, but with this 5-star review I ordered it anyways. You can't even find this one in the stores so I'm guessing it's going to be pretty rare.

64.99?! That's beyond ridiculous. If that's true, I would question the sanity of anyone who actually buys this, unless you're some rich guy with money to burn.

I'd love to see more anime on Blu-Ray, but I can't support something like this. Just like I refused to buy Hellsing Ultimate since they were releasing single episode discs that ran under an hour, yet were charging the same price as every other anime dvd. (and I'm especially glad now since Geneon shut down and won't be releasing the rest of it anyway)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! We need more Hellsing.Just d/l them or rent and dupe them if they cost too much.
This is disturbing news indeed.

looks interesting but the high price is just a turn off. i hope there are some good deals for this title soon. totally outrageous pricing. reminds me of the time when anime first went to DVD and the prices were ridiculous back then as well.

i haven't purchased any anime in HD due to their prices...
